NYSUT's Endorsements


Union's endorsements listed online, coming in NYSUT United

The NYSUT endorsements for the November elections are onNYSUT.org and will be printed in the September issue of NYSUT United. Here's the list of incumbents and challengerswho the union has determined will advocate for working families while fighting against policies that would harm students, their public schools and colleges, and organized labor.

The endorsements come from the Board of Directors following an intensive endorsement conference.


"We are living in extraordinarily complicated political and fiscal times. That was certainly reflected in the passion and resolve expressed by activists during our discussions," said NYSUT President Dick Iannuzzi in the news release announcing the endorsements. 

"Activists sorted through the 'bad votes' on Tier 6, record budget cuts and the undemocratic property tax cap, but they also weighed the important 'wins' -- balancing votes that legislators cast on the millionaires' tax; killing a proposed $250 million competitive grant program for school districts; dramatically increasing funding for SUNY, CUNY and community colleges; and protecting the privacy of teacher evaluations," Iannuzzi said. In addition, just this week, the governor signed the NYSUT-backed law to allow BOCES to accept students from other states.
